Hi List;
At this point I can ssh/scp to/from the server via however I cannot get anywhere on the web. If I try and ping google I get this:
# ping
ping: unknown host

Now if I change the settings back to automatically get an IP via dhcp, and restart the network then I can ping and get a reply.

What am I doing wrong here?
Nothing is wrong. But the DHCP automatically setup the DNS entry automatically. If you setup a static IP, you will have to add the DNS entry as well.

will work without the DNS entry.
